Any suggestion of card swap for Jaina until I have crafted it? Thinking about Lich king maybe or do you have any other suggestion?

Sure, The Lich King could work, but you will be losing out on the long-term value generated by Jaina, so make sure to craft her soon.

can i fit in dragoncaller alana for extra value instead of some card in this list?

If the meta is slow enough for you to swap in Dragoncaller Alanna, you should swap an anti-aggro card out. Ice Barrier does nothing but "heal", so that would be the first card to be removed.

I've seen a lot of players using Dragoncaller Alanna and doing well with her.

The value you can generate with it can be great especially if you drop it after your opponent burned their best AoE like Psychic Scream or Shadowreaper Anduin.

The downside is it might be high cost dead card in your hand for a while if you draw it early.

I would be very careful using Frozen's list.  It is teched heavily to beat highlander priest, and generally preforms very poorly vs warlock.  He designed his tournament line up with the intention of banning warlock every game (almost everyone at the world championship designed there line up to either beat priest or warlock then banned out the other one in every game).  Alex is rather bad in every match up, except highlander priest, you can cut her (the deck isn't a burn deck, it is a slow grindy control deck, the only reason it runs alex is so you can live through the 30 damage burst priest puts on, clear the board + second ice block, followed up by alex to stabilize, this is your game plan vs highlander priest and the only real way you can beat them, barring a strong dirty rat yoink), but you will lose a lot of percentage vs priest.  Personally, I would cut 1 dirty rat, both familiars (they are much worse with the number of spiteful decks running around, and in general can fizzle quite often vs warlock, and add in 1 blizzard, alanna, and another golakka.  Warlock is going to be your toughest match up, you really lack the burn to threaten them, geist is your best card in this match up, destroying dark pact means they have a much harder time pressuring you early.  Then all you have to do (I say this like it is easy, it really isn't) is clear every single doom guard they summon, then attrition them out with jaina.  If you want to improve this match up, find some way to add in a couple doomsayers, then you can clear the board, drop a doomsayer, and tempo swing with alanna, or add in a spell breaker or two (the spell breakers are better, but doomsayers are good against aggro).  Against control lock, if you don't have silence, you almost always will lose to turbo rin (normal control lock is much rarer then cube lock though), and really there isn't much you can do against this.

Dragons fury will do at least 4 damage. Not 5 since you have listed polymorph as a spell.

      There's an unexpected balance update coming today with Druid decks getting focused, with 1 mana cost increases for mainstays Wild Growth and Nourish, encouraging more diverse deckbuilding and making the cards feel less mandatory. Paladins also get a bit of a nerf with a similar 1 cost increase on Level Up!, while Leeching Poison gets the opposite treatment, having its cost reduced by one. Finally,  Saronite Chain Gang gets a tweak to make Shudderwock more difficult to play multiple times in a match.

      Check out the full details and developer commentary on the changes below and, as usual, you'll be able to disenchant the non-basic cards that got changed for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.
      December 19th Update (source)
      In an update scheduled to arrive December 19 PST, the following cards will be changed.
      Developer’s Note: This balance update is focused on improving the long-term health of both Standard and Wild. We've opted to make these changes earlier in the expansion cycle than we normally consider; we'd like to hear your feedback on the timing of this update, in addition to what you think of all the individual card changes.

       
      Wild Growth – Will cost 3 mana. (Up from 2)

      Nourish – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      Wild Growth and Nourish have been present in every mid-range, combo, and control Druid deck since their introduction in the Basic and Classic set. When cards from the Basic and Classic set are too powerful, they can have negative long-term effects on the game. Continuously playing against these cards can start to feel repetitive, and they can feel so mandatory that they stifle creative deckbuilding decisions. By increasing the mana cost of both cards by one, we expect them to be considerations in late-game control Druid decks, but more difficult to fit in strategies that don’t directly take advantage of ramping mana.
      Level Up! – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      Odd Paladin has consistently been one of the most powerful and most played decks since its introduction in The Witchwood. By removing Level Up from Odd Paladin, we still expect it to be a competitive board control deck, just with more consistent damage output that should be easier to play around.
      Saronite Chain Gang – Now reads: Taunt. Battlecry: Summon another Saronite Chain Gang.

      Shudderwock brings an interesting combo to the table, but playing Shudderwock multiple times in a single game can be frustrating. Changing Saronite Chain Gang makes playing multiple Shudderwocks in a game much more difficult. Shudderwock should now exist as a powerful one-turn effect rather than constantly copying itself with Saronite Chain Gang’s Battlecry.
      Leeching Poison – Will cost 1 mana. (Down from 2). Now reads: Give your weapon Lifesteal this turn.

      We love the fantasy of building a powerful weapon over the course of a game with Kingsbane, but granting it a permanent Lifesteal effect with Leeching Poison resulted in an endgame with few weaknesses, as well as conflicting with our philosophy that Rogues should not have persistent self-healing effects. Making the Lifesteal effect only active for one turn should address some of the power level issues with Kingsbane Rogue’s late game.
      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant the changed non-Basic cards for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.

      People found out that the yearly event has already began today on Asian servers and it is expected to go live in Europe and the Americas on Tuesday the 18th of December.
      Make sure to have one slot empty in your quest log as you will get a special Winter Veil quest to "Play 100 cards in Play Mode". The reward is 4 The Boomsday Project card packs.
      There is also a new Winter Veil Wonderland Bundle for 20€/20$ that contains 6 packs from each of the following expansions: The Boomsday Project, The Witchwood, Kobolds & Catacombs, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Journey to Un'Goro.
